with defense secretary leon panetta and the general dempsey on the attacks of the american consulate in benghazi, libya. a doctor room >> we welcome secretary of defense william panetta and general dempsey. we are here to talk about the attack are indeed temporary and next in benghazi libya are in september 11th and 12th last year and the internal review following that attack including lessons learned from benghazi. i'd just want to remind colleagues that we will be receiving testimony next tuesday morning on the impact of sequestration adnor -- and/or a continuing resolution. i hope that today's hearing will inform the committee of any changes that have been made or are being proposed to the posture of u.s. forces overseas to respond to similar terrorist attacks in the future that we sought in benghazi. anything that will affect the dod and installations overseas. they released a timeline of its response to the assaults of september 11th and 12th and including on the deployment of various forces based in the united states or overseas. a copy of this timeline is in front of us. i thi
in the broader region. i think secretary clinton and panetta seemed to be overruled by the white house. >> heather: it boggles the mind, the threat streams in libya, they were equaled elsewhere with equally significant and threatening intelligence, general dempsey's words. if we know that, then why this report from the deputy general that looked at 27 overseas diplomatic posts found numerous security standards violations for overseas buildings. on top of that the state department not keeping track of all the rules violated. why is that happening? >> they inspector general tells us the what and not the why. the sense i get there really is a ideological or political overtone we are unwinding wars to allocate resources to other purposes. it's not taking seriously what any reasonable person's mind would suggest. a broadening they the threat. the scope of al-qaeda and affiliated reach is expanding. there has been a lack of willingness among top leadership especially in the white house to take that head on. >> heather: you mentioned we have heard from clinton, panetta petraeus, dempsey, bren
on the senate side that leon panetta and general dempsey both said that he and hillary clinton had argued last season for arming the rebels in syria. more than 60,000 people have died, but that others on the foreign policy team pushed back, and the president made a decision not to. >> yeah. let me just say on this one i may be inclined toward the president. i'm not certain who those -- who would get those weapons. i don't want to fwet into too much detail. i'm also on the intelligence committee, but i'm -- i am not certain that those weapons wouldn't fall into the wrong hands, and that's a real problem we've had in syria. maybe more should be done earlier on to get better control of the rebels, but now to me there's too many unsavory pro-islamist elements among those rebels, so i am not certain that they should be given weapons. that's a tough call, and i'm not close enough to it on the ground, but from what i do know, i'm very leary about giving any weapons because they could end up in the hands of islamists. >> congressman peter king, it's great to have your perspective, and thank you and go

the testimony last week by secretary of defense panetta and chairman dempsey revealed a vacuum of leadership at the top of the obama administration that i found not only unprecedented but shocking and very, very disturbing, that the president wasn't intimately involved in worrying about these americans under attack, worried about other americans elsewhere in the middle east, in north africa, possibly being under attack, the lack of contact between the secretary of defense and the secretary of state. i mean this is a -- we face a threat in that region, the president is nowhere close to adequately dealing witness. i hope he talks about it tonight. he certainly didn't in his inaugural address. bill: would you expect that? i'm not counting on it. i don't think the president pays adequate attention to international affairs. i suppose he'll say something about north korea because he doesn't have any choice. bill: john bolton thank you. hemmer@fox news.com. bya, because you asked, just one line is all we need. martha: this story and this man who is a doctor are getting a ton of attention after he m

's been so much talk and today, obviously, with the hearings on capitol hill, with leon panetta, with martin dempsey, and john brennan, you were talking a lot about drones. there's been a lot of talk about the americans using drones against people linked to al qaeda. american citizens. you look at a case like this, and dorner, is this a case where you would think some time soon that we would use drones against american citizens, a case like this, where he's trying to kill people? >> no, i don't think so. and i don't think we'll ever get there. and i think it's very, very important to understand that the legal justification for using an air strike against an enemy combatant, no matter what their citizenship is, is longstanding in this country. and world war ii is the best example, where somebody would join forces with the enemy to fight the united states. they no longer have the benefit of the u.s. citizenship to protect them when they're an enemy combatant on foreign land, fighting the battle of the united states. so he was belligerent. in the al awlaki case, he's a belligerent
. and panetta revealed they didn't talk for eight hours while this whole thing was going on. >> right, right, and-- >> go ahead. >> it it can be important for a president to oversee something like this. i don't know if you remember, but it was directly reagan ordering the invasion of granada and advised against it, he said no, i don't care, there are americans there, we're going in and followed it up saying, don't worry you can always trust the american people. and this is new information, now. i mean, on one hand it kind of depresses me to keep going through what a shocking outrage benghazi was because anyone who cared knew about it before the election and still obama was reelected. on the other hand, this is new information, the media was desperately trying to make sure obama got reelected. you know, maybe they wouldn't cover this now. i think whenever you talk about benghazi, it would be useful to play a little clip of hillary and susan rice claiming it was this american-- egyptian-american film maker out here in l.a. and some siller trailer he put online. they lie about this and an ameri

about it during the retirement ceremony for defense secretary leon panetta. panetta talked about it wednesday at georgetown university and warned about the damage sequestration would do to the nation's economy. this is a little of what he had to say. we will continue our conversation with ray locker of "usa today." [video clip]>> if this happens, we will fire as many as 8000 dod employees throughout the country. they could face a 20% cut in their salary. you do not think that will impact our economy or jobs? you do not think that will impact our ability to recover from the recession? we will cut back on army training and maintenance. putting about 2/3 of our active for great -- active regain combat at a reduced level. we have to cut their training. we will have to cut back on the ability to support the troops who are not in the war zone. we put more stress on those who are in the war zone. we are going to have to shrink our global naval operations. with a reduction of our western pacific naval operation. this idea about having to rebalance will be impacted. we will cut the air fo
security. it's important to note that secretary panetta has made clear that allowing these sweeping cuts to go into effect would be -- quote -- "devastateing -- devastating in his words and would badly damage the readiness of the united states military. the fact is defense has already taken a huge reduction in future spending. the defense budget has been cut and is slated to be cut by $460 billion over ten years, and that is before sequestration. when this number is added to the defense cuts scheduled to begin on march 1, we are looking at an enormous impact on the -- our national security. now, it's important to recognize that we're not saying that the national debt is not a problem. certainly, when you have a $16.4 trillion debt, that is not sustainable, and the national debt is a security concern in its own right. just last year, in 2012, the federal government spent $223 billion in interest payments alone. that means we're spending more on interest on the national debt each month than we spend in an entire year on naval shipbuilding and the coast guard budget. just think about that.
is help didn't come soon enough. we heard leon panetta saying we needed 12 hours to be able to bring help. this has not been -- it's not been sourced completely. we don't know who the sources are. >>steve: there is a lot of skepticism regarding it. but keep in mind, a lot of the sources are spies. and for the most part spies don't like their names used in the papers. >> still ahead, we're getting word that pope benedict 16th is going to resign on february 28. we have the latest after the break. >>gretchen: the most memorable moment from this year's national prayer breakfast when a world-renowned doctor upstaged the president with his idea about a flat tax. is that a good idea? >>brian: stuart varney thinks so. thinks so. he explains next. but she loved it so much... i told her it was homemade. everyone tells a little white lie now and then. but now she wants my recipe [ clears his throat ] [ softly ] she's right behind me isn't she?
